Folks probably feel a little bit silly getting all worked up about that Tim Tebow ad before they had even seen it, right? Maybe the protesting groups would issue a statement saying something like, "While this ad is unobjectionable, it is important to remain steadfast in our defense of a woman's right to choose." Save some face, stand up for the cause, move on. Right? Wrong:
The 30-second "Celebrate family, celebrate life" ad starring Heisman winner Tim Tebow ended with a surprise -- Tim Tebow tackling his mother after she says she nearly lost him during her pregnancy. The pair jokes that they have to be "tough" with all the family has been through. . . .
The Women's Media Center, which had objected to Focus on the Family advertising in the Super Bowl, said it was expecting a "benign" ad but not the humor. But the group's president, Jehmu Greene, said the tackle showed an undercurrent of violence against women.
